According to old belief amulets and talismans are tools to trigger changes in life. Old grimoires contain instructions on how to build these charms in a way so that they can use positive planetary energies to fulfil their purpose. For this talismans transfer positive powers while amulets grant protection by absorbing negative energies.
The biblical king Solomon established the Jewish secret doctrine of Kabbalah and his wisdom is the foundation of all western magic until today. 3000 years ago he wrote the magic book "Key of Solomon" - also this talisman is built according to these magic instructions.
The hieroglyphs on the talisman Monas Hieroglyphica - also called the Hieroglyphic Monad - emanate from a point in the centre of the upper circle und are said to join the energies of the planets and the four elements in harmony.The central point symbolizes a Monad, the smallest undividable unit of the whole creation and therefore being a basic building block of the universe facilitates the balance between the planetary powers of Sun, Moon, Venus, Earth, Mars, Jupiter and Saturn and the four elements earth, fire, water and air. According to old belief this talisman is said to bring luck, health and harmony to its wearer and therefore was very popular in medieval times. It was developed by Dr. John Dee in the 16th century based on the doctrine of Kabbalah. Dr. Dee was an advisor of Queen Elisabeth I and devoted most of his life to alchemy, astrology and Jewish magic.
Among other things medieval knights of the 16th century carried this magic talisman as a fortune charm on their belts. It was popular because according to old belief it was not necessary to charge these kabbalalistic pendants - the correct choice of symbols and materials was everything needed for the talisman to work. The knights therefore used this pendant not only as jewelry but also as an aid to achieve changes in their lives.
This pendant is made of brass and copper. With the exception of gold copper is the only colored metal and just like silver and gold it is classified as a precious metal. The brass, a copper zinc alloy, is responsible for the yellow golden parts of this piece of jewelry. The copper on the other hand is used for the red golden parts and is particularly suitable for the jewelry production due to its softness and malleableness.

We were always fascinated by pieces of jewelry designed according to historical artwork and magical and other old motifs are a main area of our jewelry collection until today. Nowadays we all are surrounded by designs and motifs from all over the world which we usually choose according to visual aspects without considering the original meaning and symbolism of the various depictions. For sure the beauty of the different designs and materials is a good reason for selecting them but the affinity to a special piece of jewelry or art craft can be enhanced if one knows its deeper meaning and its origin. For this reason we always placed value on the accurate representation and information explaining the various pieces of jewelry in our collection.
Jewelry always had various functions which changed during the course of time: Because of the precious materials that were often used for its design it often was a valuable asset and sometime was even used as a currency. But especially in ancient cultures the spiritual meaning of a piece of jewelry was always important and the different motifs were symbols for the affiliation of its wearer to and his status in a social group. Furthermore jewelry can also serve a practical purpose like this is the case with safety pins, belt buckles and brooches.
Since jewelry is such a diverse cultural asset the meaning of a given piece can depend on the point of view and beliefs of its creator. For example many cultures developed pieces of jewelry showing to others whether its wearer is married or single: In our Western world these are the wedding rings while in African countries e.g. special bracelets or necklaces are worn for this purpose. Whether we are talking about weddings jewelry or talismans and amulets that were used for protection - often the decorations and materials determine the symbolic meaning of a piece of jewelry.
Not only the used symbols and decorations differ strongly between the cultures - a huge number of different materials were also used in the course of time. In the beginnings especially shells and pearls of wood and bone were used, because these natural materials were readily available and could easily be processed. Later the precious metals silver and gold became more and more important and also the use of precious stones increased. Nowadays all possible materials are used to underline the meaning of a piece of jewelry even further thereby creating pendants and other jewelry that could not be designed using traditional materials.
